Perennial Ryegrass

Perennial Ryegrass is a fast establishing, highly palatable, cool-season bunchgrass that produces excellent quality forage. It is best used for forage or pasture. It has only moderate winterhardiness in the northern U.S. Perennial Ryegrass thrives on moist, fertile, well-drained soils. It does not perform well on sandy soils or under drought conditions. It is most productive in early spring and fall, but can become dormant during hot summer months. Longer drying times make ryegrass better suited for green chop, silage, and grazing than for dry hay.
